about lydia.

I'm Lydia Davidson, I'm an actor, teacher and theatre maker who runs theatre company, Fearless Players. I'm from Newcastle, in the North East of England. I trained in Musical Theatre at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich, London. After graduating I spent 4 years working as a freelance actor and project manager. I then moved to Glasgow where I joined the MA Musical Theatre course at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Having fallen in love with Glasgow I stayed and created, Fearless Players with the brilliant Shonagh Murray. ​

With Fearless Players I wrote one woman show, 'Confessions of a Child Star' which has played in venues across Glasgow as well as the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018. I also produced sell-out, 5 star show 'Armour: A Herstory of the Scottish Bard' (Edfringe 2018 and 2019) and 5 star show 'Burns: A Lost Legacy' (Edfringe 2019).​ I recently spent some time in South Korea working with English Musicals Korea where I wrote Treasure Island and Fun Fest.
